Hello,
We have a patient who had a bipolar hemiarthroplasty for femur fracture at another facility, which became infected. Our physician did I&D of infected hip and replaced the bipolar head. After I&D of infection, "The exposed stem and acetabulum at the surgical site was lavaged. The bipolar head size was determined from the removed implant, and new bipolar head was inserted on the stem".
The stem was not removed from the femur, just replacement of bipolar head.

27236-52?

Also, this was in global period of surgery by another physician from another Orthopedic group so I'm unsure if I need a modifier because of global.

Thanks!
Tobi C.
